And probably our last… Hahaha! No we had a blast but it was a lot of work. Taking a 1 year old beach camping is quite an adventure!
We camped on the cliffs of Carlsbad. The weather was perfect, in fact it was during one of those heat waves, so we really lucked out. As an overly protective Dad I was constantly trailing Carter, which left little time and resources for photojournalism. However there was one morning and one day at the beach that I brought out the Canon 50D, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, and the Canon 16-35 f/2.8. He is the cutest little bugger you’ll ever see!
We played in the sand a lot, building sand castles, running around barefoot, digging holes, and I cant forget eating it! Yeah Carter ate quite a bit of sand! When his hands would get dirty he would lick them to clean them. I think he learned this from our cat Josie! I think next year will be a bit easier, assuming he will listen when we tell him to get out of the street. Apparently playing hot wheels anywhere but in the street is too great of a compromise!
Here are some of our family memories from our camping trip at the beach that I wanted to share!
